. and if there had been no candidate goldwater in 1964, there would have been no president-elect ronald reagan in 1980. it was goldwater who proved his famous time for choosing television address which made him a political star overnight and led to his running for governor of california and eventually president of these united states. david recounts how bill rusher shore up the goldwater committee when money ran short and spirits sagged. skillfully guided young americans for freedom in his early chaotic days and forced some order and discipline on the blind spirits who ran the "national review," expanded the conservative movement through the tv program the advocates, his newspaper column and lectures and champion ronald reagan when other conservatives were somewhat skeptical about the actor turned politician. bill loved american politics, traveling to distant land, and national review's effervescent edit her bill buckley of whom he once said, quote, the most exasperating people in the world are so often the most beloved and he is no exception. david frisk has captured this and more in his sple

not come into our homes in the way the modern president does. it happened to ronald reagan, it happened to bill clinton, george bush. and that is, obama fatigues. three years from now, people will be writing columns about obama fatigue, just as they did about clinton fatigue and bush fatigue and reagan fatigue. franklin roosevelt only gave 30 fireside chats in 12 years. he understood instinctively the dangers of overexposure. he also controlled the media to an extent that modern presidents could not hope to. host: looking back, fdr broke the unwritten code of serving more than two terms. he was elected to four terms. in today's modern age, could we have more than two terms for any president? guest: great question. >> you worked for ronald reagan. if his health was better, of course, would he have run for a third term? guest: i doubt it. he talked about it after he left office. he was going to campaign for appeal of that amendment. he thought the american people should be able to vote for anyone wanted to vote for. it is very difficult to imagine after eight years of office -- we've used
about politics, but politics in the real sense of the word. >> let's listen to ronald reagan talk about this. >> weapons designed for war have no place in a movie theater. the majority of americans agree with us on this. and by the way, so did ronald reagan, one of the staunchest defenders of the second amendment who wrote to congress in 1994, urging them, this is ronald reagan speaking, urging them to listen to the american public and the law enforcement community and support a ban on the further manufacture of military-style assault weapons. >> that man has more in common with ronald reagan on policy than any republican in the house of representatives. ronald reagan raised the debt ceiling when necessary without complaint, and raised taxes more than once. and reagan was in favor of a ban on assault weapons just like president obama. >> right, and that comment was a way of saying that these are very centrist reforms, really common sense things that most americans agree with. he emphasized that in a few ways and a few times during that time. and i think the framing you're talking about,
does. it happened to ronald reagan, it happened to bill clinton, george bush. and that is, obama fatigues. three years from now, people will be writing columns about obama fatigue, just as they did about clinton fatigue and bush fatigue and reagan fatigue. franklin roosevelt only gave 30 fireside chats in 12 years. he understood instinctively the dangers of overexposure. he also controlled the media to an extent that modern presidents could not hope to. host: looking back, fdr broke the unwritten code of serving more than two terms. in today's modern age, could we have more than two terms for any president? you worked for ronald reagan. if his health was better, of course, would he have run for a third term? guest: i doubt it. he talked about it after he left office. he was going to campaign for appeal of that amendment. he thought the american people should be able to vote for anyone wanted to vote for. it is very difficult to imagine after eight years of office -- we've used up our presidents. that is why this string of two- term presidents is really so unusual. we have a strin
, you can come back to ronald reagan, and lo and behold, no surprise, there is a rejection of the jimmy carter years, with a very formal, gold tickets to inaugural balls, and clearly it is an inaugural ball. the program that seems sort of informal for his, becomes pinched very formal -- becomes very formal just a few years later. this says something about those administrations and what they are trying to conceive and produce during those events, and it also says something about all of us as well -- something about the nation, its feelings, what it was looking for because they are certainly trying to play off of that as well. part of the material that we collect is just about the enthusiasm. now, inaugurations are meant to be days of national celebration and national unity. they are not, obviously, always that way, so these kind of souvenirs that people might create, just as in the days of george washington -- you know, here are these brass buttons, these little penance that people could buy from the vendors on the street and take home. i particularly like this. this is a little glass tr
, particularly by congress. >> ronald reagan tried to do that. he came into office, and it was all is amazing to me, reagan has become one of our most beloved presidents. people forget some of the stuff that happened. and he wanted to change the direction of civil-rights. he wanted to make sure that the civil rights laws that were passed or not enforce the way they were supposed to be enforced. he decided that he would -- the first thing, the commission was standing up and what stocking administrations. so they said okay. we will chase the members. that we get into a big fight because when they got to me and get ready to change, i sued them and i sued them. i won the lawsuit that the course of the commission was supposed to be a watchdog. i used to say, what start in a lap dog. so that in changing the election of the commission, and even though later we were able to get some traction push the door, growing out of the 2000 election, the voters election, the commission has never been the same since that time. so reagan in the sense succeeded in making in the body that could not listen to ordina
. >> talk to us about ronald reagan's central american policy. >> he sent it back about 20 years. he took the cold war to a new level. he almost took it to the edge of world war again. he said constantly that the soviet union was the head of the united states in every military capacity. we were always ahead. a a but we were always the underdog in our own mind. central america, in regin's mine, becomes the bulwarks of communism. -- in ronald reagan's mind, becomes the bulwark of communism. they are going to come up. he is worried about what mollah, honduras, going read. central american molla countries going read. i saw soldiers there the reminded me of my own experience in vietnam, young, walking around, lost, white skin and all of that. i said do you remember vietnam? they said we do not want to talk about it. there were death squads, terror, the right wing parties of central america took they're not from reagan and karen -- nod from the reagan and killed dozens of people. out of the economics of ronald reagan, the south americans were decimated. the international monetary fund and world
and -- >> exactly right. they have qualified people. and there's always a loss of presidential focus. ronald reagan did a very good job of winding down the cold war but at the same time he had the iran contra scandals going on in his sec term. >> stephen: what is obama's scandal. the conservatives have been going after him with big guns. benghazi, the corbomight maneuver? it's just an episode of star trek but it sounds dangerous. what are they going after him with him? >> they are going to continue on what was not so successful is that he has socialist policies in mind and that he in the eyes of a lot of conservatives is somebody is not truly an american. >> stephen: well, the evidence is the executive over reach. he is clearly tyrant. rand paul said we don't like kings in this country. we don't like kings and king obama the first signed an executive order today, okay. that is countermanning the second amendment. is he going to be impeached? s but there are people calling for that? >> there are people calling for it and it won't happen. >> stephen: clinton was. >> that was entirely different. >> st
on the west front of the capital since ronald reagan was president because he was governor of california, a man of the west, and wanted to face to the west as president and he picked that side. now, the problem with this is the joint committee on the inauguration tix that site in june of 1980, and ronald reagan was not even nominated until july had -- july. the inaugural platform under construction in november -- and jimmy carter were reelected, he would've been sworn in on the west front. if john anderson would have been elected, he would've been sworn in on the west front. ronald reagan was sworn in on a decision made by the joint committee on the inauguration. now, ronald reagan was smart enough to realize that he could take possession of this, even though he did not order this, or choose this. he put it in his inaugural address and he said i am the first president to look west, looking out over the graves of the heroes in arlington cemetery, towards the pacific. he took ownership of that move from the east front to the west front, even though he was not the person to choose it. this
by what's going on right now. >> as with ronald reagan and bill clinton, the second terms, you can see a few green sheets of the economy and if that begins to surge, david axelrod tells me later in the show, has a real chance. >> he has a huge agenda, a lot of opportunities and going to have to find a way to work with republicans not only in the senate but the house of representatives. let's see if he can do it. it's a huge, huge challenge and the responsibility is enormous, the opportunity is great. >> well, we have to see and itching to get to the party, wolf. >> love those people back there. did you hear the marching band? >> you know why i think they're so excited? your performance in skyfall. >> you were in "flight." >> that's why i wanted to mention it. >> i was in the james bond film. and you were in -- >> really great. really great for me. >> if you work really hard and play by the rules, some day maybe daniel craig and -- >> was it daniel craig or denzel washington oscar nominated? >> i don't know. >> it was denzel. do you know who helped him? me. >> let me point out. $1 billi
for this was the ronald reagan operation, the ronald reagan campaign and the ongoing echoes of that campaign. they didn't have one organization, but they had a series of organizations to make certain that they played for the long pull. they played for history. and they were in many ways effective in doing that. now we're in the 21st century. and what president obama did during the campaign, he took the most creative thinkers that he could find, people to use the cliche who think out of the box. he married them up, if you will, wedded them, molded them into the information era high technology whiz people who knew how to leverage the information age to his electoral advantage. now that's what they want to do with this organize for action. and frankly, i wouldn't bet against them. this could be very, very effective as he tries to get his agenda going and maintain it. but make no mistake, we are dealing here and the country is dealing with and the republicans are dealing with a somewhat different barack obama. you could feel it today. it's been coming for some days, i think, that in the first term he was y
, ronald reagan former budget director, joining he now, we would like to spend extra time with david, like a sponge i try to soak in all his smarts, what do you make of what nate said. >> he has a lot of statistics, but it does not capture all of the things by any means, i say no, i want to re reference backo what ronald reagan phased in 1981, and where we've drifted for 30 years since, there was 21.2% of gdp on spending side left by carter, what the republicans cannot understand that is agan did not reduce that. he left was on -- >> as a percentage. >> he left, it was nearly 22% of gdp, big government was bigger, since then it has drifted even much higher, to 24, 25 percent of gdp, the problem is defense, it is medical programs, it is really social insurance. nonmeans tested, social security, medicare, 1.5 trillion going to millions of people who do not need it, should be cutback or cut off. he didn't talk about any of that. second, when ronald reagan came in revenues were 1 19.5% of gdp, that was carter's tax level, he cut taxes a little bit, but 2012, they were down to 16%, both parties
who wants be president of the united states ronald reagan opposed these assault weapons in clear language. the house caucus are having their retreat today. we heard today there was no talk of guns. i think a lot of republicans want this to go away. the speak aespeaker's office sa there is legislation pulled down we will deal with it then. that minority may be ultrahard-core conservative gun owners that have made this a test or it is the nra but it has put republican ares with an active number of brain cells who wish to see a future of their party who have been painted into a corner. >> they are on the wrong side of these polls showing where 74% of the american public is. i think that is where the politics meet the public opinion. we know you have reported on the fact that congress is not a broadly represented institution. republicans are representing these districts. so the response is that our districts say something different. >> and al ex, the thing about this retreat, they are proudly getting it out there. we know they have to have down so privately. but they actually want th
laying out his wish list for a sweeping bill on gun control. even through what would ronald reagan do reference for good measure. plus more on the bombshell report that te'o's girlfriend that inspired him did not, in fact, exist. we'll break down all the details but lance armstrong is the sports story the year and it's bizarre. first let's get to the news live here at 5:30 a.m. at 30 rock in new york city. we begin this morning with gun violence in america. president obama planning to introduce legislation next week calling for the biggest changes to gun laws this country has seen in two decades. yesterday the president surrounded by children who wrote him letters after the newtown tragedy urged congress to take action on a number of proposals including universal background checks for anyone buying a gun, restoring the ban on military style assault weapons and limiting magazines to ten rounds, giving law enforcement additional tools to prosecute gun crimes and improving the mental health system for young people in this country. the president also outlined 23 executive orders that most
and presidential overreach? >> we have a history and, if you look at ronald reagan he accomplished tax reform in the second term and president clinton made progress towards the balanced budget. there was good second-term accomplishment. it is not like we're roaming around the white house looking for things to do. we have immigration, gun safety, measures to help the economy and energy and we have a stack agenda here. there is urgency in the country for us to address this. we'll bring the same energy and focus he did to the second term. obviously, other administrations got, you know, in trouble with scandals. we avoided that and hope to continue that. but, those issues and others, education reform, there is just no shortage of things we can do to help the american middle class and the economy. we're going to pursue those and we are mindful of it and i think you have to stay connected with what you ran on and you can't bring stuff out of thin air, you know, i think one of the problems with the social security privatization effort during the bush administration was that wasn't really a core thin
the extreme right wing to say impeach him. now remember when ronald reagan died and his friend was talking about what a deranged senile their hero was? and "django unchained," remember one important fact. at least it's not "rock of ages." today is the birthday of jadae dr. roar will laura there'sen slessinger. this is "viewpoint." [ ♪ music ♪ ] >> good evening, thank you so much for spending the evening with us. this was one of the president's most powerful speeches since he took office. as promised president obama told the nation what he and congress must do to strengthen gun laws and stem the tied that killed 26 people in newtown last month and hundreds more. the first national gun legislation since 1994. mr. obama would like to see a number of changes to our gun laws and supported measures such as tightening gun checks, insuring database. and research in gun violence causes and prevention and hire school resource officers, and insuring medicaid recipients get quality mental healthcare. senate majority harry reid said i'm committed to ensureing that address gun violence. all options

romney won't be here. the last time a vanquished opponent didn't show up was in 1985 for ronald reagan, and walter mondale was a no-show. that was the last time that the 20th state fell on a sunday and they had to do the monday as i rememberrial, versus another day. and back in those days, it was the coldest one on record, 7 degrees. there will be differences between the obama 2009 and 2013. four years ago, the crowd estimate was nearly 2 million people. there is a big parlor game about whether the crowd estimates on the mall are ever accurate. but nearly 2 million. now they are saying between 600- to 800,000. and there are a series of other things. and the money. four years ago, the obama administration, the obama campaign raised $53 million for the inaugural with personal contributions, all capped at $50,000 or less and there was disdain expressed by the administration about taking corporate money, et cetera. all of those conditions have been lifted. they are taking corporate monet and $50,000 cap has been lifted and it's smaller. they don't expect to raise $53 million, making it eas
deal to him. >> okay. 1985 ronald reagan comes up. he says exactly the opposite. exactly the opposite of barack obama reagan says the government's the problem. we ought to get the government out of the way and unleash the american people who will return the nation to prosperity. reagan very popular president among americans remains so. personally, personally barack obama very popular. i think his personal rate is around 59%. job approval 52. how can this country in the space of, what, almost 30 years, change so dramatically in our philosophy? >> well, first of all, obama today did say that it's a fiction to believe that government alone can solve all of the problems. so he is taking somewhat of a middle course now. if you look at that speech, i mean, it's an odd speech he just threw out things. there is kind of no coherent plan and, again, i think the missed opportunity was to say to the american public and the world, look, this is where i'm going. this is what matters. one, two, three. these are the things i'm going to do. and there was a scatter shot approach. and i think a lot of t
candidates who could carry even massachusetts. think eisenhower, think ronald reagan. well, lately, the party has been running candidates who can't get much closer to the northeast than ohio. and not even that, the last two times. it's a whole part of the country, the northeast, with lots of people living in it that's become foreign territory. last night, i watched the u.s. house of representatives become hurricane aid. i now call the party of guns that were people. its instinct is to fight for guns. last night, it was aid for the northeast. does anyone out there think it would stop there? the move is to increasingly vote for guns, vote for war, vote against people. why? i cannot figure. to paraphrase an old saying, guns don't vote, people do. we've seen the horror of crazed killers with semi-automatic weapons. we still haven't caught sight of those darn helicopters. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with e schultz starts right now. >> this is our first task as a society. keeping our children safe. this is how we will be judged. >> the president lays it all on the line for ne
inaugural. but also theodore roosevelt, dwight eisenhower, ronald reagan. i look at it more as a form of relaxation for the president when we get to meet him. he gets to chew the fat a lit bit about past presidents. >> doris, you're a presidential expert, how do you rate president obama in the pantheon of great presidents? or just presidents? >> well, you know, when you think about the great presidents, great necessities call forth great leaders. so george washington, abraham lincoln, fdr had a huge crises to face. obama had a pretty big crisis to face. he did accomplish in health care something since presidents since teddy roosevelt have been trying to accomplish. but i think most importantly, we'll see now the fact that he's got a second term, that's really important to embolden him for what he can accomplish, and more importantly, to show that the country supported kurg a very difficult time his leadership and they wanted him back again. so i think he's got a shot. it depends a lot on what happens in the second term, if he can create -- i wish he would go in the midterms to try to
for partisanship and he'll be that when the time arises. this was answering ronald reagan from 32 years ago. his whole philosophy was intensively individualistic. president obama answered that today. and he said an old speech writers device. to repeat again and again, we the people, we the people. the first three words of our founding document. he embraces that, he said to ronald reagan, we're stronger together. and i thought it was powerful but philosophical. i thought this was obama at his best. >> i saw a lot of tweets from republicans saying this was a call for big government that he didn't reach out enough. >> there was partisanship. it is hard to deny when he directly rebuked the gop by saying we are not a country of takers. by defending the government level of programs, social security, medicare, medicaid. but directly rebuking paul ryan and the 47% comment that got mitt romney in trouble. there may have been high arching philosophical tones but there were also those tones. >> are you embracing the 47% comment? >> no, no, i wouldn't say, i don't know if it is fair to say it wasn't partisa
for private sources to underwrite what is going on. ronald reagan gets a lot credit for moving the inauguration when he did not move the inauguration. he moved the inauguration of four years later. that was in 1985. it was below 7 degrees. it was a bitter cold day in washington. the reagan white house the night before looking at the weather forecast thought it was cruel and unusual punishment to make people outside in this weather. they call the chairman of the rules committee and the inaugural committee and said, we think it should be moved aside to the rotunda. being part of a joint committee, he thought the best thing was to call tip o'neill. it was finally tracked down in a bar where he was watching a basketball game kindre. said, it is his inauguration he should have it where he wants it. congress cooperated and move it aside. -- moved it inside. most people saw it on television at that point. the architect of the capital said, i would be impeached if i moved the inauguration inside because there are so many people coming to washington. a lot of inauguration's have been he
at it as a reply to ronald reagan in 1981. in the same place ronald reagan got up and said government is not the solution to the problem, government is the problem. yesterday was sort of not only a response to that but almost a bookend as reagan moved the country in a conservative direction. barack obama obviously hopes to move it in a liberal direction. >> the "new york times" editorial had this to say. mr. obama is smart enough to know that what he wants to achieve in his second term must be done in the next two years, perhaps even the first 18 months. there is no doubt that mr. obama has the ambition and intellect to place himself in the first rank of presidents. with this speech, he has made a forceful argument for a progressive agenda that meets the nation's needs. we hope he has the political will and tactical instincts to carry it out. lot of things in that quote, but one that struck me, we always talk about how it's a never-ending campaign now. is that what we're looking at now, a president has 18 months to get something done? >> i would be a little bit -- i would say six to e
